Trisha is the founder of Sydney Women's Physiotherapy with over 15 years of clinical experience in Women's Health and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Physiotherapy. 

Trisha is committed in leading her team in providing the highest quality of care to empower each individual patient to achieve their goals with sensitivity, understanding and respect.

 

Early in her physiotherapy career she has gained a firm foundation in assessing and treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, her most rewarding and challenging role was working as a civilian physiotherapist within the British Army, where she gained a strong interest in treating complex musculoskeletal conditions. This grounded her skills in biomechanics of the human body.


Working opportunities within the hospital System in Women's Health Physiotherapy allowed exposure to working collaboratively with other health clinicians within Ante-Natal Care, Maternity Wards and Pelvic Floor Outpatient Clinics both in Australia and the UK. Conditions treated included pre and postnatal pain, pelvic floor dysfunction (incontinence, sexual pain, prolapse etc.), abdominal muscles separation, young babies with musculoskeletal and developmental concerns.


Trisha has done extensive post graduate training within the areas of Women's Health, Pelvic Health Physiotherapy and Pain Science. She believes in a holistic and integrated body systems approach to assessment and treatment. Her expertise in external and internal pelvis assessment is a key feature in the successful outcome of her patients care.

 

A systematic exercise prescription method is essential for all physiotherapy treatment, hence Trisha incorporates Pilates and functional training style exercises into her patient’s treatment.

 

Trisha is a wife and mother of three daughters.  In her spare time, she enjoys Karaoke with her girlfriends, exercise training in the backyard with her kids and sport mad husband.

 

Trisha consults on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
